This is another shot from our Christmas Eve Day shoot
at Saint Angela's in Pacific Grove.
This is a nearly impossible shot. If you look at the
you can see that there is a balcony area in front
of the very bottom of the mural. This small
alter is behind the wall under that balcony.
It was actually taken from the foot of the mural
as a panorama of nine shots and perspective
corrected after the fact.
While we were there we heard the story of how this was
supposed to be another stained glass window to match the
others around the church. But the Pastor who was working on the
project passed away unexpectedly in a traffic accident. I think
the end result is very beautiful nonetheless. The
artist is a member of the church, Jean M. Maynard.
Sometimes you can be surprised what amazing talent is lurking
right in the seat (pew?) next to you.
